Post @V"files" does not return wildcard? Reply with quote

using @V"files" to pull the name of the actual file that triggered the job.

The trigger is set up to be : \\server\directory\*.pdf

it seems to fail when i use a wildcard, but not when i specify a single file.

My searching seems to indicate it should work with a wildcard...?

BTW, it is still wrong in the documentation -- @V"file" instead of @V"files" -- 3.4.26

With a wildcard it should return comma-separated list of files whose matches the wildcard. In case of a single ile it will return just one name.

I will do some testing here and will get back to you.

Yes I can reproduce that issue locally. I recall somebody reporting this issue a while ago and I am sure we had a fix for it, which I am still trying to locate.

After a long search I found out that the fix was provided in one of the earlier versions but then lost. This a regression bug.

I can suggest the following simple workaround.
In place of @V"files" with a file mask, if it is in a script job use the following

Dim myfile, string
Dim myfile2, string
Dim temp, string

DirEx "c:\\source_dir\\*.pdf", myfile
FileSplitName myfile, temp, myfile2
Concat "c:\\target_dir\\", myfile2, myfile2
FileMove myfile, myfile2

Set the job not to move or rename the file automatically as it will be done through the script. The myfile2 variable will hold the full name of the file after it is moved out of the source directory.

: That would be helpfull, thanks
